LX Colors Revival

Openbox Themes

This is an update to the LX-Colors theme series I created back in September of last year that is now compatible with GTK 3.20. This is an attempt to keep the legendary Shiki-Colors theme series alive, in four variations, such as Light, Mixed (light, but with dark menus), NeoShiki (the LXDE/Openbox successor to Shiki-Colors), and Pitchdark (all-dark variations). New features in this edition include:

* Two new color schemes: Carbonite (dark gray) and Tribute (light gray, kinda gold-ish)
* An update to the GNOME-Colors icon theme series that now includes the new aforementioned colors, created by Kylie McClain of Somasis.com. Please give her some love and thank her for her hard work.
* In addition the classic Arc-Colors wallpapers, I've also resized them for smartphones and have called the smartphone versions of those wallpapers just simply "Mobile-Colors"

Enjoy! :-)

It's sure pretty cool, and I like to have it, but in my browser, opera, I have no ways to download; how could i do?

This looks pretty awesome! Does it include the window borders ?

For Openbox and LXDE, yes.

That said, I tried LXQt yesterday, which is the Qt-based successor of LXDE. Since I found it impossible to get EXACTLY the look I wanted, at least with LXQt in its current form, I have decided to switch to Xfce as my desktop of choice, at least for the time being. Whenever I get a chance, hopefully in the next couple of weeks, I'm going to make Xfwm borders for these themes, too. But don't worry -- I'll keep the Openbox themes in there too, as part of the package. And, of course, once LXQt matures, I do plan to take another look at it again in a year or two.
